The Pasta Pals toy's blue container measures about 2.5 inches in diameter and 2 inches deep. Inside are three red tomato figures and three yellow ravioli figures. Children can empty the figures out of the container and link them to form a chain. "FAZOLI'S ITALIAN FOOD...FAST" is imprinted onto the top of the barrel.
